California Connoisseur shiraz Made this kit 6/5/2016 followed the instructions to within a couple of days. Bottled it today. Had a cheeky taste and have to say I've had ÃÂ£7 bottles of wine that taste worse. Now that's at bottling so hopefully it will improve over the next few months. If it lasts that long. I don't know how to describe it properly but smooth, fruity flavour, nice texture and good colour.
